How To Be Single Reviews

Page 1 of 8
January 15, 2019
A film with plenty of flaws but also fleeting moments of insights into relationships that make it more fun than I was expecting.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
December 25, 2018
Still, for a movie that's built largely on rom-com tropes, it's actually surprising how much [the characters] avoid cliché.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
November 8, 2018
Unfortunately, How to be Single is annoyingly jittery and woefully generic. The characterizations all feel synthetic and the contrived dilemmas for how these young women cope with men of uncertainty, reluctance and absurdity fall flat
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 29, 2018
A likable, though ultimately vanilla romantic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
August 27, 2018
It feels like a season of a generic soap was shoved together and edited for time.
December 3, 2017
It doesn't go for as much low-brow humor as you would expect judging from the trailer, but instead likes to use all of its intertwining characters and stories to again, just explore the different lifestyles, benefits, and freedoms of being single.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 4, 2017
Director Christian Ditter paints a pretty but hollow, hetero-normative and infuriating portrait of singledom.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 24, 2017
How To Be Single struggles to say anything new about the modern dating game in New York City.
October 17, 2017
As much as you can feel Single trying to break rom-com stereotypes, ultimately it can't shed the formula.
December 31, 2016
Might I suggest an alternate title for "How to Be Single"? "Typecasting: The Movie!"
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 5, 2016
Johnson is an appealing lead and although the message is mixed and some of the scenes are awkwardly badly written, it holds together fine over two hours and there are funny moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 15, 2016
98 percent of the film could be written off as a pandering, dopey, female-centric sex comedy, except in the last few minutes, to my shock, it actually does something vaguely commendable.
Full Review | Original Score: 77/100
November 14, 2016
How to Be Single is over a half hour before it's over.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 21, 2016
How to Be Single gets major points for trying to do something different, but ultimately it's still a Netflixer at best.
August 15, 2016
Wilson generates a number of heartfelt laughs, Johnson is a magnetically compelling lead and Mann is just plain spectacular, stealing every scene she's in with an effortlessness that's just plain super.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 26, 2016
How to Be Single doesn't succeed in its mission to add a new lease of life to the rom-com formula, but when taken with a pinch of salt (or tequila), it has just enough laughs to warrant a right swipe.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 22, 2016
A rom-com aimed at the Girls demographic, How to be Single is firmly and often satisfyingly female-oriented.
June 20, 2016
Those who truly appreciate a great chick flick may find it enjoyable, but somewhat disappointing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 13, 2016
If only How to Be Single had the smarts to not just deliver twists on clichés, but avoid them altogether.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 25, 2016
It is refreshing that new movie How To Be Single is, for once, truly comfortable with the notion that women need not be paired off to lead fulfilling lives.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
